Cox baronets of Dunmanway (1706)

The Cox Baronetcy, of Dunmanway in the County of Cork, was created in the Baronetage of Ireland on 21 November 1706 for Richard Cox, Lord Chancellor of Ireland. The second Baronet represented Clonakilty in the Irish House of Commons. The title presumably became extinct on the death of the 12th Baronet in 1873.

Cox baronets, of Dunmanway (1706) edit

Title claimants edit

There were claimants to the title, including most notably the historian and Church of England clergyman, George William Cox, Edmund Charles Cox and Captain John Hawtrey Reginald Cox. These were ultimately rejected, by the Privy council in 1911 and again in 1915.[4][5]

Extended family edit

Richard Cox (died 1581), Bishop of Ely and Chancellor of Oxford, was the great-great-grandfather of the first Baronet.[6]
